    Canadian officials were quick to finger ISIS in this week’s attacks on government targets. But it’s still not clear whether or not the killers were part of a larger jihadist web. Terrorists have twice attacked Canadian government targets this week, with a shooting Wednesday at the country’s parliament in Ottawa. Now Canadian and American authorities are trying to learn whether the killers acted alone or were part of a larger extremist network. The mayhem caused by alleged Ottawa shooter Michael Zehaf-Bibeau occurred just two days after another man, Martin Rouleau-Couture, struck two Canadian soldiers with a car in Quebec—killing one...

Yusufzai remains at large despite an international arrest warrant being issued for his capture. ***SNIP***

    By ordering military bases shut down, the Canadian government is acting upon the assumption that this is a jihad attack, and one that is being carried out in obedience to the Islamic State’s call to target Western military personnel. “Ottawa shooting: Live updates,” by Steve Robson, Mirror, October 22, 2014 (thanks to Lookmann) [For the pics and videos noted, hit the Mirror link -- times below are UK time, not Ottawa time]: 4:46 pm Military bases shut down across Canada Military bases are being shut down across Canada in response to today’s events.

  • Reuters: Suspect in Ottawa attack identified, was a Canadian convert to Islam [SURPRISE? NOT]

    That’s all Reuters has right now, apart from his name: Michael Zehaf-Bibeau. One reporter notes, though, that that name appears several times in Montreal’s court database on drug charges. Martin Couture-Rouleau, the suspect in the other recent attack on Canadian soldiers and a convert to Islam himself, also lived in Quebec. Might be just a coincidence but the first thing police will be investigating is whether these two knew each other. The timing of the attacks suggests that there was some copycatting happening at least.Another interesting detail: A Twitter account linked to ISIS apparently tweeted a photo this afternoon...

    Speaking for the first time since a gunman attacked parliament earlier today, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper called the week’s multiple assaults “a grim reminder that Canada is not immune to the types of terrorist attacks we have seen elsewhere around the world.” Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, 24, a reservist serving in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, was shot and killed while guarding the National War Memorial in Ottawa. Minutes later, a gunman opened fire inside the halls of parliament before he was shot to death by House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vicker. The CBC reported that police confirmed a photo...

    TORONTO - There are still no leads in the case of an eastern Ontario scientist who disappeared without a trace last month, leaving his colleagues mystified. Lachlan Cranswick hasn't been seen since Jan. 18, when he left work at the National Research Council's Canadian Neutron Beam Centre in Chalk River, northwest of Ottawa. His nearby Deep River house was reportedly left unlocked and his car was in the garage. His wallet, keys and passport have all been accounted for......

Amid trial allegations, court details and defence objections, significant questions arise about Mr. Khawaja's status as a consultant to the Department of Foreign Affairs at about the time of his arrest. Prosecutors claim the software contractor used his perch inside the department to send streams of E-mails...

    Canada refused to extradite brother of accused BOSTON (AP) — A Somali arrested in a post-Sept. 11 crackdown on money transfer businesses was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in prison for operating without a state licence. Mohamed Hussein was convicted in April of two counts of illegally transmitting money abroad. Hussein, 33, and his brother, Liban Hussein, 31, were arrested during last fall's crackdown on al-Barakaat outlets across the United States. Prosecutors had asked for a sentence of at least four years, three months in prison — a recommendation that drew harsh criticism from U.S. District Judge Robert Keeton. "You're...

    The Canadian edition of Time Magazine has chosen Syrian born Maher Arar as its Newsmaker of the Year. The Ottawa Ontario resident landed at JFK International Airport in New York in September 2002 after returning from Tunisia where his wife has family. The Canadian citizen was detained in New York and then shipped off to his native Syria where he was detained and tortured for over a year before being released. After returning to Canada, Arar chose not to blend into the woodwork but forced the Canadian government to hold an inquiry into his arrest and detention and to examine...
  • Why Our Allies Don't Trust Us

    If Canadians require further evidence why our allies in the war against terrorism no longer trust us, they need look no further than the Maher Arar case. This is the man U.S. authorities apprehended at Kennedy airport in New York last September, alleging he was an al-Qaeda operative. Mr. Arar is a Canadian citizen, but he also is a citizen of Syria and as such under U.S. immigration law -- Canadian law has a similar provision -- was subject to deportation to either Canada or Syria. U.S. authorities chose to send him to Syria. We can only guess why. At...
